"pt" is "point" unit: not the dot or pixel point, but the font size unit... Anyway, "em" is NOT equal to an absolute value (pixel/n) but is a unit relative to the current (related to context) target element font size: rouglhy, 1 em almost equals the current font width of "m" and/or line height requirement (few more than height of characters ^^)

"pt” is point, a measurement from printing. 12 points to a pica. Printed fonts came in standard sizes. 10 pt was roughly a standard text size for reading, 48 pt would be a headline.

pt means points. It is one of the measurement scales just like px, %, cm, etc.

see this page for more information https://www.w3schools.com/css/css_units.asp em=px/16 if you don't chnge font-size of parent. but always rem=px/16 px in mm pc are absolute units recommended for print. em rem % vw vh and etc are relative units; recommended for screen. vh and vw are 1% of width and height of viewport. Pixels (px) are relative to the viewing device. For low-dpi devices, 1px is one device pixel (dot) of the display. For printers and high resolution screens 1px implies multiple device pixels.
